Small Sofas and Extra Wide Armchairs

Buying new furniture can be an exciting business, especially if it’s your first home, it can also be quite a daunting experience too. Measuring up is essential, so you get an idea of the best size sofa to fit the room. Once all the hard work is done, and you’ve decided a small sofa, snuggler chair, or loveseat armchair is for you, that’s when the fun begins. Be prepared to have an open mind when choosing your furniture because there are many styles. Apart from small sofas, buying two loveseats, or an extra wide armchair maybe all you need.

Petite Sofas with Slim Arms

There are various size sofas on the market and extra-wide chairs that will seat two average-sized people comfortably. Some department stores and furniture shops have a selection of compact sofas under various names, such as love seats, cuddle chairs, snugglers and snuggle chairs. They can be made of leather, fabric, wicker and rattan, suitable for the lounge, dining room, bedroom, study and conservatory. Compact sofas are versatile for most spaces in the home where extra seating is required.

Low Button Back Sofa STYLES

As a rough guide, a small sofa measures up to 174cms. A love seat can be quite roomy, and buying two oversized chairs may give you more flexibility when rearranging a room. Buying low-back sofas with narrow arms will give the illusion of space if your room is small. High-back chairs, wide flared arms and curved structures can enhance rooms with higher ceilings or open-plan rooms.

Many fabric sofas come with coordinating scatter cushions, but you can mix your colour theme. You can buy cushions and throws that blend or act as a contrast to the room’s decor. You can let your imagination run riot and create your own wow factor.

Velvet Fabric and Leather Slimline Sofas

Shopping for sofas and chairs is a major investment for your home that you want to get right. There are many different options and bespoke fabric services to help you make the best choice. Marks and Spencer sofas and armchairs come in a range of colours and materials, including velvet, chenille and soft leather. You can view the top-selling fabrics and leather plus browse their sofa gallery to find the ideal shape.

Buying small sofas at John Lewis is equally as exciting with the latest living room furniture ranges, style advice and buying guides to help you choose. You’ll find modern, retro and traditional style furniture, including armchairs, sofa corner units, sofa beds, chaise longues and footstools.
